Hi All, just wanted to officially announce myself.... It's been tough just lurking (intensely!) for a week. My wife just purchase the analog MES 30 (the one with the legs on the bottom) for me for father's day. We're down in South Jersey, near A.C. I've already posted a few ?'s in the electric smoker forum and already got some good responses. Started Jeff's E-Course this morning. Need to get over to the butcher ASAP. Can't wait to get smoking!!!
